Help and Troubleshooting / Re: Dilemma

Alzheimer's is a terrible thing to have to deal with. Found a link that over at Fightsim that lit a spark. It was about when loading FSX and the accel pack right clicking on the EXE  icon and going into the compatibility window and changing to WIN 7 from XP. and VIOLA everything loaded as advertised.  I knew this but have forgotten over the years that I have had FSX. Now begins the arduous task of putting ORBX RTMM and ETC sceneries back and reloading the aircraft that I use. At least I  saved the old loading of FSX to another  drive to follow

I didn't either - I got my hair cut once by Clem when he had a barber shop at Anchorage International airport - he gave me a hard time because I didn't give him a tip....

Great article!  I did not know that Clem Tillion's daughter ran The Saltry.  Very interesting stuff. 

Thanks, Bob.

Ok if you can't get to a live agent at that number above anymore, then use the main Microsoft phone# and get an live agent. There is no reason you should have to replace your product- if they changed or discontinued their products/reg. 

The Main Microsoft phone # for USA is- 1-800-642-7676 - and talk to "Technical Support" and get someone LIVE!

(https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/4051701/global-customer-service-phone-numbers)


--------------------------------------------------------------------
Now if you want to go to P3D regardless, (not sure if you can even get P3Dv3x anymore.. - it's P3Dv4.5 which is the current version).

(But if you go there, it's a much better sim than anything else you have used before (and basically has the same folder structure as old' FSX but run's at 64bit.. so if you're running a windows 7, 8 or 10 OS in 64bit then P3Dv4.5. academic works - and very well. 

BUT.. the only thing with P3Dv4.5 that you have to be aware of is that only FSX native models and up work, so any older FS9 files (which existed in FS9, FSX or FSX-SE don't work in P3Dv4.5 and actually crash the sim: that why there is the Tongass fixes here - make it work in P3Dv4x as well as a couple of RTMM models upgraded to FSX Native...

Let us know how you make out with Microsoft!  (I just talked to them last week concerning a corrupt v1909 update in Windows 10 - so I know they are somewhat ALIVE (even though they might not be very smart at times!(that's a long story for another day!).

Well if anyone is keeping score. Tried the phone number and it sent a message to my phone, only problem is they asked for a 6 or 7 numerical digits  install code and my copies of FSX and the accel pack are alpha/numerical with 5 digits. Step two completely uninstall FSX and acel pack and reinstall and once again hit a brick wall when after entering the install code and wouldn't connect. I'm guessing when MicroSoft decided FSX was obsolete they shut down the activation portal. So I have to decide whether to buy the Steam version FSX SE or bag it and go with L/M's prepar3d V3. Question is does anyone know how compatible L/M is with 3rd party aircraft, bot payware and freeware
